  • Spoke rim blew out

    So just like someone posted the other day happened today. So i have a 99. Will the spoke rear wheel from an 08 be a direct fit for my bike?

    Additionally, will Mike’s 99 cush hub and internal bearing fit my 2008 wheel?

    Okay so I don’t know if spoke wheel is the same as the cast wheel but I was talking with Lugnut about switching to the cast and he pointed this out.

    The only issue is the mushroom head the 1600 pulley roller bearing has.
    The 1700 pulley roller bearing doesnt have this built in spacer.


    Look at the hubs and see if they are different. Hope this helps

      On the diagrams I just looked at the clutch hub center and cush Drive dampeners are the same model numbers from 99 wire wheel and 2008 wire wheel. So I would assume you be good to go and just reuse your old pulley and belt

        In both cases mentioned above a bearing swap will be needed. In both cases just simply remove the bearings and spacer from the old one that you are removing and install those bearings in the new rim/hub.

        Shores you will only need to swap the hub bearings with your old ones from the 08

        MikeyC You will only have to swap out the bearings on the hub side of the wheel on your 99

          Look carefully and you can see the problem! He ran over a dice!

            Wow! What are the odds of that ever happening again.

            WOW that is about as odd of a thing as I've ever seen.I could almost understand something like that happening on a cast wheel that hit a giant pothole but on a steel wheel I don't get what could have happened to rip that rim apart.

              Never seen that on a steel wheel. Internal rusting?? Just a bad rim?

                Maybe fractured during tire change?

              I guess your OK. I bet it was a real task getting stopped without going down.

                A friend was riding that bike as his bike had a front wheel bearing going out. He said,"oh, it was no big deal" but the marks on the pavement said he did an awesome job keeping it under control and up right. And he was 2 up.

                Damn that's scary MikeyC, glad he was able to keep it upright and everyone is ok.

              Hey Mike, since you said there were marks on the pavement I wonder if the tube failed and then riding it on the rim is what tore the rim versus the rim tearing first. Was he going straight or making a right or a left turn?

                He just came out of a right hand turn. You could see where the rim contacted the pavement on both sides then a big space then tire skid on the left and jump 5 ft to the right in about 3 ft distance then he stopped about 40 ft past that

                  Left side skid was about 2 ft long and right side skid was about 4 ft long

                    What brand tire? Just curious if it was the one brand that has had issues with tread separation.

                      The tire looks good except where the rim bit it a couple times

                          Wow that has to be a primary rubber problem for the secondary rim problem after it hit the ground I'm guessing
